Fairfield schoolchildren busk for hospital




Fairfield schoolchildren busk for hospital

Pupils from Fairfield School in Backwell have contributed to a hugely impressive effort by schoolchildren and community groups across Bristol to raise over £17,000 for Southmead Hospital.

Children from the independent North Somerset school took part in The Great Bristol Buskathon and performed carols at the hospital for visitors, patients and staff during the Christmas period.

The children’s efforts raised over £100 for the Buskathon, now in its fourth year, which will go towards funding several important projects, including research into the causes of brain cancer, dementia care, a digital microscope for brain surgery, a 3D technology centre and the development of bereavement services.

Ian, of Southmead Hospital said: “Huge thanks to Fairfield School for participating in The Great Bristol Buskathon, we were delighted with all the effort our huge team of volunteer performers put in and it really paid off.

“We have had all the loose ends tied up now and are proud to say that with 96 performances across eight venues we managed to raise £17,881.91! Thank you so much for giving us your time and talent and making the effort to bring the children here!”

Lesley Barton, headmistress of Fairfield School said: “We are so pleased to have participated in such a lovely and inspirational event at Southmead Hospital.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the live performance, which brought some sunshine to those passing by.

“It is wonderful to hear that the Buskathon raised a fantastic amount overall. The projects it will fund are hugely important to Bristol and we look forward to supporting the hospital more in the future.”

Fairfield School is an independent co-educational school for children aged 2 to 11. Class sizes are limited to a maximum of 20 at Fairfield School, with many much smaller. There is a very wide range of clubs and activities, sport, music and drama to excite the interest of pupils.
